Crashes every time on iPhone 7+ and 4K Apple TV 2/5
Can’t get it to pair it says and starts to after I enter code and then app crashes but Apple TV and phone think they are paired but I can’t control a thing. I can control a fourth gen Apple TV just not the 4K one.

Good apps work how it’s supposed so far, only thing is the interface. Maybe make it look more like the actual Apple TV remote so it’s easier
If I said this app worked half of the time I’d be lying. It can’t connect to the Apple TV 4K or ATV 4 so I can’t make purchases on my Apple TVs and I’m forced to purchase items through my iOS or macOS devices. Please fix this b/c entering a password using the touchpad remote is horrible.
Won’t Connect 1/5
Like lots of other people have said, the app connected my Apple TV once, then never again. It’s so strange the Airplay from my phone works great and sees my Apple TV instantly. I can stream and screen mirror perfectly. I can even screen mirror on my Apple TV the Remote app telling me it can’t find my Apple TV. Frustrating!
Remote App - So So 3/5
iPhone X. New AppleTV. Remote app response is hit and miss. Apple Genius says he has had same issues, and to use the older remote app.
Won’t connect... 3/5
By Being honest...
Buggy on connecting
App is good, new YouTube is crap 5/5
New YouTube for Apple TV is complete crap, Google Please fire everybody involved in that project
Cannot use iPhone X 1/5
As soon as I enter the pairing code the app crashes. When I open the app again it assumes it is paired but then I get an error that it cannot connect. YES IM ON THE SAME WIFI!!!
Please repair app 1/5
This app was fine but now it has stopped working all together no matter how many times I re-download it or unpair and repair it, I’ve done literally everything and it won’t work but it works just fine on other phones
Used to work... 1/5
This app used to work great. I used it often when using my Apple TV and enjoyed the option since the small silver remote can go “missing.” I can no longer get it to connect to my (same) Apple TV on the (same) network it always was on.
Love Apple TV, but Roku nailed the remote app 2/5
By max egami
Roku: totally intuitive, responsive, great layout. Apple: i’ve got to think about how to get the response I want, looks like iOS interface...which isn’t down for selecting shows from the couch.
Apple, you can do better
Worse Apple App - Unreliable 1/5
I have 2nd, 3rd and 4th gen Apple TVs. Remote app “sees” the Apple TV one minute and then poof, gone. Frustrating msg about making sure the Apple TV is on the same network is getting old. The all are. They show up one minute and then I lose one (3rd gen). I’ve reloaded the app, reset the Apple TV, unplugged and reconnected the Apple TV but nothing! Apple needs a redo on this app.
Constantly shows Apple TV offline 1/5
This is close to useless. It constantly shows my Apple TV as offline even while it is in use. The only way to get this to work is to use the remote supplied with the Apple TV and reset it. Then every once in a while I can use this App.
It just stopped working 1/5
This app was great. I kept losing my remote so I was fine since i had the phone paired to both my AppleTV 4 and the 4k. Now the app keeps telling me that it cant connect and to make sure they are on the same network (which they are). I’m able to airplay without a problem but this app just crashes and force closes when i get to pair them and then say it cant connect.
Lots of bugs 1/5
This app constantly looses connection with my Apple TV and I have to reconnect it.
Worked great for 1 month 1/5
Worked great for a month and then stopped connecting to my Apple TV, even though they were on the same WiFi. My wife’s phone also stopped connecting the same day. This was not due to updates, the app just doesn’t work after a while.
Can’t connect error 1/5
Keep getting a can’t connect to Apple TV error, yet my device can screen error without issue.
Volume Control, please? 2/5
Unless I’m just missing it... why doesn’t the application have the ability to adjust the volume levels??
Replaces RF (radio frequency) 4/5
I was looking to buy a new remote for the kitchen. Since the Appletv is hidden I can’t use the regular remote (only works with IR(infrared)
Downloading the Remote app, saved me money and it’s so much fun and a lot easier to use.
Apple TV remote 2/5
Ok app NoVolume Control.
Fix this. 1/5
This app is a piece of trash and makes me want to throw out all of my Apple things. It will forget your iPhone and then your iPhone won’t be able to find it. Background: tried erasing, updating, resetting etc. iPhone is 2 weeks old, Apple TV is 2 years old.
When it works, it’s fine but most of the time it cannot connect to my Apple TV or I’m having to close and reopen it to get it to work.
No longer working 2/5
This has worked great for awhile, but has now suddenly quit working and won’t recognize my device. Says it’s not connected. I have not changed, moved, or updated anything. No reason for it to loose connection, other than a bug has popped up.
This update makes it unusable 1/5
By Sweet Pea 43
I really liked it before this update. This adds a game controller which I can’t imagine anyone using on a phone.
This upgrade took away the second screen which would quickly allow me to turn on or off closed captioning and tell me what I’m watching, which episode it is and where I am along the playing of it. I watch a lot of YouTube so these were important features for me. I am left with no reason to use this app I’ll just use the remote control that came with the Apple TV box because that’s all this app does now.
PLEASE change it back!!!
This app doesn’t work 1/5
It has worked for years and now it doesn’t. I depaired, repaired, went into router settings and entered MAC addresses, renamed my network, changed my network password. Nothing works. It pairs, you can use it for about 10 minutes, then it never works again. Fix it.
An Apple with a worm 1/5
An Apple product connecting to another Apple product. That seems pretty straight forward yet Apple somehow managed to completely mess it up. This app works 40% of the time at best. Why they even bothered releasing such substandard, mediocre, and obviously untested app is a mystery to me.
Doesn’t work consistently or when you really need it too. 1/5
Tried all the tricks I’ve read online, flat out inconsistent garbage. What’s so hard about making this work like it should?
Almost never works 1/5
Every time i try to use this, it can’t connect to my Apple TV. It always tells me to make sure my phone and Apple TV are connected to the same WiFi, which they always are, and yet this app can’t seem to figure that out. Lame.
Took the worse Apple product in history — the AppeTV 4K remote and made it into an app 1/5
This app just takes the crappy touch interface of the Apple TV remote and copies it. Suffers from the same crappy touchy behavior. My LG TV remote is far superior and is my go to remote for Apple products. Whodathunkit?!?
Can't connect 1/5
Used to be a solid app. Now it "Can't connect to Apple TV". Have to reboot, reset, unpair to make it work. And then it happens again
Works for the most part 2/5
Glitches out or just won’t work with some apps...like YouTube...
Sense updating tvOS to the latest version, app crashes 1/5
I updated my Apple TV to the latest OS last week, ever since the remote app will not work at all. Sometimes it connects and instantly crashes, most of the time it will not connect at all. It still works for older Apple TVs in my home, just not the latest version, please update and fix apple.
Works as expected 5/5
Only issue is it is not too responsive with games. A swipe to the left is registered by the app as a swipe up or down. Other than that it works just fine
Apple is doomed 1/5
You still don’t listen to users 1/5
App still crashes. Horrible compatibility with the new YouTube update. App is trash in the accessibility pane. You had one job and you still can’t get that right. Thanks Apple
By UGAly Casanova
Works great and then not so much. WTH? I can give three or four commands before the app needs to be redownloaded! Please make it more stable cause you encourage absorbing media elsewhere as a result. TIA!
Worst update! 1/5
This is the worst update ever! After the update, and fast forward in YouTube anymore. The most I can do is 10 second at a time!
The update you did to YouTube in Apple TV is equally bad if not worsen. I have to go I my subscription one by one before I can get to the one I wanted! How dumb is that!!!
The previous version worked really well!
Just bring back the previous version!!!
Great app. 5/5
By Garrett Reider
This is an incredible app, the only thing i ask for is to have the touch panel at the top use 3D touch and click the Taptic engine when when you press.
Huge issue after newest update 1/5
I had a great experience with the Apple TV app prior to the latest update. It would connect mostly flawlessly and I enjoyed using it since I somehow lost my remote to it. After the update my app will not recognize my Apple TV even though they are on the same WiFi. I’m very disappointed that I can no longer use my Apple TV because of an update that wasn’t thought out.
worthless. Never updated; always drops cxn 1/5
Apple dropping the ball again. This app is about as functional as the touch bar and not even as decorative.
App Crashes when paired and... 1/5
even though the Apple TV shows that the phone is paired, the App says I’m not connected to the same network. AirPlay® works fine, but I cannot use the iPhone X to control any of my Apple TVs (4th Gen and 4K).
Flawless until 2/5
This app worked flawless until last month. One day it no longer saw our t.v. and told us we were on the wrong WiFi. I deleted it, reinstalled, nothing. After a week without a controller it suddenly worked again.
This has now happened three times. It makes our ability to use our television useless.
Not good 1/5
I have problems connecting my I-phone 10 and my I-pad pro, on Apple TV 4K.
Horrible app constantly disconnects 1/5
Constantly disconnwcting even after paired horrible app i promise you very very sad app it is not hard to build this app
Trash ! 1/5
Slow and non responsive . Super clumsy to use
Done with apple 1/5
This app working perfect before. New iPhone X. New OS 11. Now it won’t find or connect with any of the 7 Apple TVs I have. All on updated OS. Airplay can connect to all 7 apple tvs. Used to be I would use apple products bc they worked without any or much issue. Well, not any more. Will moving away from apple products. My 2 new TVs have roku built in anyway.
Needs an update 2/5
This remote used to work BEAUTIFULLY! Now I can’t get NONE of my devices (iPad and iPhone) to connect to the tv. I get an error message says “Can’t connect to tv, make sure (the name of my tv) is turned on and connected to the same WiFi-network. well my network haven’t changed. We’re connected to the Same network. I’ve tried unpairing and repairing and restarting my devices. Please update!!
Good, but needs volume control option!! 4/5
I love this app! Works perfectly and very convenient . I just wish they would integrate the volume control option as well.
I don’t understand the problem 2/5
Like so many other reviews, my phone will not connect to the TV. It says that it’s paired, but when I try to use it, the phone tells me to make sure I’m on the same network as the Apple TV. So, I’m not sure what the problem is. It needs fixing.
